We begin the year's "Elly Patterson, Exceedingly Reluctant Hockey Mom" arc with her complaining to a fellow hockey parent about how cold they keep the hockey rink.

(Strip number 749, Original Publication Date, 19 November 1984)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find Elly in the bleachers of the hockey rink shouting incoherent words of encouragement at Michael.

Panel 2: Someone who could well be Gavin Caine praises her for keeping up the team spirit.

Panel 3: She tells him that she's not doing any such thing; you see, the rink is soooooooo cold that she's actually trying to keep herself from freezing to death.

Summary: We're probably in for another arch remark about how cold hockey rinks are from someone who grew up spoiled on the West Coast. Either that or more whining about how team sports brutalize innocent children and fill them with so much HATE and RAGE, they turn away from cuteness and goodness and thus reject the lovely costume their poooooor mother made with all the love in her great big heart, WAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! (What we won't get is any comment about how Elly doesn't eat enough to keep herself warm.)
